Cancer August Horoscope

Health is still good this month. The retrograde of your health planet, which began on June 20, suggests caution in making radical changes to the health regime. It’s probably not a good time either to arrange for medical tests or procedures. Re-schedule them for a later time if you can.

Retrograde activity increases over last month. After the 20th half the planets are in retrograde motion. Life slows down. Events slow down. Patience and understanding are needed to deal with all the various delays that are happening. (This is one of the reasons why an understanding of astrology is so important: it might not stop events occurring, but it helps us understand them.)

The month ahead is still prosperous, perhaps not as much as last month but it is still good. You remain in a yearly financial peak until the 23rd. On that date your financial planet moves into Virgo and you seem more careful – less speculative – than last month. Your financial judgement is sounder. This favours earning through communication – through sales, marketing, advertising and PR. Whatever you are doing, good marketing – good use of the media – is important. This would also favour trading, buying and selling, and retailing. You’re spending more on books, lectures, seminars and education this month. Your investments (if you have them) should bring in more dividend or interest income. Perhaps you’re buying new communication equipment or vehicle accessories. Siblings and sibling figures are having a good month. Their love lives seem stalled, but they have good self-esteem and confidence.

A financial disagreement with the spouse, partner or current love seems intense on the 6th and the 7th. It should ease up afterwards. Be careful of overspending on the 19th and 20th.

The love life is still complicated as your love planet is still retrograde. However, things improve after the 23rd. The beloved will feel better and less stressed. Singles still need to go slowly in affairs of the heart and not try to rush things. The beloved’s finances begin to improve on July 29, and they improve even further in the month ahead.

The two planets that rule foreign travel are both retrograde this month, so probably best to avoid this. However, if you must travel, allow extra time to get to and from your destination. Insure your tickets. Don’t schedule connecting flights too tightly.

College-level students are indecisive about educational plans. Legal issues are very delayed.
